Blooming

A few weeks back I got a cutting from my neighbor of his Hibiscus plant. Actually two cuttings, one for me and one for Krista since it is her favorite flower.
I put them in a vase in the diningroom window and hoped for the best. At first they wilted so much I was afraid they were not going to make it. But then the stalks started to stand up straight and I noticed tiny roots starting.
Last week I noticed one of the cuttings had a small bud on it. I thought that was neat since it was still rooting. But this morning I went in to water all my plants and saw this flower. It is really large and the most beautiful color!!!! It looks like delicate tissue paper! It is just so beautiful it was a nice surprise.
